According to a report by PhoneArena, following the update, the syringe emoji is no longer filled with blood.

Furthermore, iPadOS 14.5 beta 2 update will automatically close the microphone when the Smart Folio is closed on the eighth-generation iPad as well as the fourth-generation iPad Air, second-generation 11-inch iPad Pro, and fourth-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

The report also adds that iPhone users will feel a triple tap when they remove a MagSafe accessory from the back of their iPhone. The update also mentions a battery pack which could be a clue to the fact that Apple might soon offer a MagSafe portable charger. The battery pack might improve charging efficiency and maximise battery life.
